Which size should you choose?

Sizing is very important and depends on several variables.

The Humble Hunter has each photograph available in four sizes. Whilst each photograph has the greatest impact and provides a greater  experience with the biggest size, extra large may not be the best solution for your wall. Read on to find a few things to consider when thinking about size.

CONSIDER WHERE YOU WILL PLACE YOUR PHOTOGRAPH

If you can, try to have an idea of where your artwork will be featured.

This will help greatly in determining which size would suit your wall best as you can be sure to get the correct size that is in proportion to the space it will be featured in. Once you know which wall your photograph will be displayed on you will be able to consider sizing and think about other elements in the room.

A small photograph can’t fill a big wall on its own. A large photograph can look cramped and busy if there isn’t enough room for the photograph to breathe.

If you dont have an allocated space for your artwork, the small size can be displayed on a shelf, or mantle, or the large size would be perfect for most wall spaces if it will be sitting on the wall on its own.

Also it is really important to ensure your Fine Art photograph won’t be displayed in a place where it will be exposed to direct sunlight.

IS THE PHOTOGRAPH GOING TO BE A FEATURE IN YOUR ROOM?

A good thought to consider is whether your Fine Art piece will be the main feature of your room, or a secondary element to tie the room together.

Large wall art acts as a feature in your room, it will be the focal point, the highlight, the first element you will see. A large piece of wall art serves as an anchor to which all other elements will attach to and lead from.

From a design perspective also consider negative space in your room, allowing negative space around your photograph so it has freedom to shine and is uncluttered by surrounding elements.

Remember your Fine Art photograph will need to be framed. With a matt and frame you will need to add at least 2 inches on each side, possibly up to 3 inches of you are purchasing a large or medium size.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE GIVING A PHOTOGRAPH AS A GIFT

If you are purchasing a photograph as a gift, firstly, you are a beautiful human, impactful fine art photography is such a meaningful, thoughtful gift that will last for generations and will be enjoyed each and every day. On behalf of your the recipient, thank you for your significant, valuable thoughtful gift. Secondly, a ‘safe’ size could possibly be medium. A medium photograph is 16×24 inches in size, add 2-3 inches each side for framing and you have a piece of artwork that will happily sit on most walls. In my 15 years of providing portrait clienst with wall art, the 16×24 was the most popular size by far.

If you know the gift recipients home, you may know which size would work best. If the recipient is an avid art collector the small size may be the best option to add to their collection. The small size (12×18 inches) can sit beautifully on a shelf, mantle or a small wall.

HOW DO YOU WISH TO EXPERIENCE YOUR ARTWORK?

Photographs in The Humble Hunter collection such as The Survivor, Safe Haven and Retreat have been created with the intent to provide an immersive experience. When these photographs are displayed on a large scale the viewer is able to come close, dive in and fill their line of sight with the colours and flow of the photograph, allowing their eye to follow the carefully designed lines and feel the full effect the photograph is designed to create.

Other photographs in The Humble Hunter collection such as Rattle and Ride, Reclaimed Warrior and Shepherd in the Shadows have been created to tell their story from a distance. You can see Shepherd in the Shadows displayed on this page in the four different sizes; small, medium, large and extra large. For the wall it is shown to be displayed on, the large size would have the best flow, composition and impact.

If you are having trouble deciding on just one photograph, an option could be to choose two medium sized photographs and display them side by side. Grouping allows individual photographs to have the weight and prescence of one single, large photograph.
